Cuban Black Bean Salad.

Cuban Black Bean Salad Recipe

This is a very refreshing salad. The creaminess of the black beans mixed with the crunch & punch of sweet red and yellow peppers, and the light touch of garlic, fresh cilantro and lime juice in the dressing…Yummy!

I was surprised. Didn’t expect to like cold beans.

Citrus Spice Chicken.

citrus spice marinade chicken recipe

Mild citrus flavors from the orange and lime juice marinade. Warm, slightly sweet mix of spices with cumin, ginger, cinnamon & nutmeg…

I was hesitant to try this recipe, because I naturally link cinnamon & nutmeg to sweets and baked goods. Unless, there’s a Christmas ham involved.

Since it was too cold outside to grill, I cranked the oven up to 425 degrees to get a bit of char on this baked chicken.

Lime Chicken Tacos. Take Two.

Chicken Tacos

Lime Chicken Taco Recipe

Remember those lime chicken tacos I posted awhile back, but the finished photo got deleted? Well…I remade the tacos, with a couple changes. And, I remembered to save the pictures!

Recipe changes:
• Pulsing the cooked chicken in the food processor for a more even “shredded-ness” before adding the seasoning/spices and cooking the additional 5-8 minutes.
• Adding 1 teaspoon of cumin powder and 1 teaspoon of chili powder for more flavor.

Easy and delicious dinner.

Need an awesome snack food for the Superbowl? Are you planning to watch the big game?

I most likely will, and I’m still undecided on who to root for since my home team didn’t make it.

Each year it seems I get more into the sport. I think I’ve watched “fooseball” every Sunday since this season started, and many Sundays I made these fresh, crispy, flavorful ‘tater skins. My husband loves them, as do I. They are awesome, dipped in a little bit of sour cream. Mmh…

9 Soup, Chowder & Chili Ideas.

Tomato Spinach Soup Recipe

That bowl up there is Tomato Spinach Tortellini, but with ditalini pasta instead of tortellini. I’m pretty sure you can substitute any pasta in this one. I sometimes cook italian sausage to add in this soup. Delicious! Especially with freshly grated parmigiano reggiano cheese on top.
